On Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con, SYFY and USA held three separate panels for Chucky Season 2, Reginald the Vampire Season 1, and Resident Alien Season 2. You can watch new previews from the three shows’ panels using the players below.
SYFY also announced that Resident Alien will return for a third season. You’ll find the art for the third season announcement below as well.
The second season of Chucky will premiere October 5 at 9 p.m. on SYFY and USA. Chucky is a continuation of the iconic film franchise chronicling the murderous escapades of the notorious killer doll.
In the TV series, Chucky crosses paths with archenemies, old allies and new prey, as he seeks to inspire fear and mayhem wherever he goes. After his diabolical plan to invade America’s children’s hospitals was foiled in season one, Chucky now seeks revenge on those he holds responsible.
They include surviving teens Jake (Zackary Arthur), Devon (Björgvin Arnarson) and Lexy (Alyvia Alyn Lind), along with his ex Tiffany, now his sworn enemy. Meanwhile, can “Jevon” make it as a couple in the face of adversity at their new Catholic school, not to mention a brand-new onslaught of terror from the demon doll?
The series is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and executive produced by Don Mancini, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner and Jeff Renfroe.
New series Reginald the Vampire will debut on SYFY on October 5 at 10 p.m. In the show, the world is populated by beautiful, fit and vain vampires. The series, starring Jacob Batalon (Spider-Man films), is based on the book series by Johnny B. Truant.
Reginald Andres tumbles headlong into it as an unlikely hero who will have to navigate every kind of obstacle – the girl he loves but can’t be with, a bully manager at work and the vampire chieftain who wants him dead.
Fortunately, Reginald discovers he has a few unrecognized powers of his own. A new show with a lot of heart and just enough blood, Reginald the Vampire proves the undead life is just as complicated as life itself.
Reginald the Vampire is produced by Great Pacific Media Inc., Modern Story Company, December Films and Cineflix Studios and executive produced by Harley Peyton, Jeremiah Chechik, Todd Berger, Lindsay Macadam, Brett Burlock and Peter Emerson.
And last but definitely not least, Part 2 of Resident Alien Season 2 will premiere August 10 at 10 p.m. on both SYFY and USA. Based on the Dark Horse comics, Resident Alien follows a crash-landed alien named Harry (Alan Tudyk) whose secret mission is to kill all humans.
In season two, Harry is once again stranded on Earth where he must confront the consequences of having failed his people’s mission to destroy the human race. The second half of Season 2 picks up in the immediate aftermath of the shocking action Asta (Sara Tomko) took to save Harry’s life.
They must deal with the emotional fallout of the night all while searching for the alien baby – a search that leads to big realizations for each of them.
Meanwhile, Sheriff Mike (Corey Reynolds) and Deputy Liv (Elizabeth Bowen) solve a big case, Ben (Levi Fiehler) and Kate (Meredith Garrettson) attempt to sell Patience on a new resort, and D’arcy (Alice Wetterlund) fights the challenge of a lifetime. The series also stars Judah Prehn.
From UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Amblin TV and Dark Horse Entertainment, Resident Alien was adapted to television by executive producer Chris Sheridan.
Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg of Dark Horse Entertainment, and Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank of Amblin TV also executive produce.
